I eat cannibal, feed on animal
Your love is so edible to me, I eat cannibals
I eat cannibal, it's incredible
You bring out the animal in me, I eat cannibals

What can you do, you're in a stew
Hot pot, cook it up, I'm never gonna stop

Fancy a bite, my appetite, Yum, yum, gee it's fun

But lobster-loving New Englanders weren't the only ones scarfing down the record-breaking harvest. Lobsters even started eating lobsters.


OH NOES!! Crustacean Spongiform Encephalitis!! Mad lobsters! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!

Cannibalism. Uh huh. You could do that with 12 fat people and someone would be gone before lunch time.

"Delicious Cannibals" would be an excellent band name.

Isn't that why they have to wear the rubber bands when they visit the community pool down at Red Lobster?

all fish are cannibals

I have to teach my betta girls NOT to do it or they'll gut one of their sisters in minutes.

I never see dead fish anywhere in my 30g tetra tank either... sometimes I see spines laying on the bottom with nothing attached.

Lobsters are actually WASTE eaters, anything edible from plant material to humans with concrete overshoes.

TASTY ocean cockroaches.

Cannibalism is a purely human construct. All meat eaters will eat the meat from their own species when given the chance (although I'm not too sure about that when they knew the dead critter when it was alive), especially the ones in the oceans.

I don't eat lobster and crab simply because they are too much work for too little meat, I've passed on a lobster dinner more than once just because of that. I'll devastate a plate of shrimp though, and aren't they just the smaller and less armored cousins of lobsters?

If only we could breed land cockroaches to have the delicious flesh of a lobster or crab. World hunger? Solved. Roach boils everyday!

I ruined shrimp and lobster for my wife when i told her they are just bugs of the sea. Delicious, wonderful bugs that i will happily eat hand over fist. Now she wont eat them at all.

// more for me.

Big cats will sometimes eat their young. Lions will eat members of their own pride that die from accidents.

I would be allll about eating bugs if they were available and tasty. I hear grasshoppers are very nutritious.

I once ordered myself a box of mealworm snacks out of curiosity. They had BBQ, cheddar, and salsa flavors, so I went with a variety pack, They had a pretty good texture but were unremarkable otherwise even with the flavorings. Regardless I found myself munching on them like I would cheetos.  I'd dig it if I could pick them up at my supermarket.

Now you know what to do next time the cicadas come out to play.

// CSB: living in Baltimore in summer of 2004 (the last time we had the swarms), I was driving with the window down, and I hit a cicada with the sideview mirror at ~40mph. Splattered all over my left side, but I don't remember how it tasted. I imagine they're better fried than raw, too.

Great, now that will be in my head all day.

Also, I might be a cannibal too if humans were made of lobster.

My friend feels this way about both lobsters and shrimp. A bunch of my friends were over for dinner and I served some shrimp, which my other friends were happy to peel and eat. She just covered her eyes as if they were cracking open cockroaches and sucking out the insides.

I've eaten beondaegi (boiled silkworm pupae). It tastes terrible, so I'll never eat it again, but what stops me is the taste, not the idea I'm eating bugs.

I would cheerfully try eating a cockroach if I had assurance it was clean. Although from what I've read they do not taste good unless properly prepared.
